Copyright Matters Lecture Series

About

The Copyright Matters lecture series is a community forum of the U.S. Copyright Office that discusses the practical implications of copyright law in the 21st century, provides education and training to the staff of the U.S. Copyright Office, and offers programming for the public. A wide range of invited speakers - including Congressional leaders, authors and performers, company representatives, legal scholars, and Copyright Office staff - have delivered presentations on issues of topical importance since the series started in 2011. Lectures and events take place at the historic Library of Congress and include discussions on issues such as authorship, copyright registration, marketplace developments, fair use, international norm setting, copyright enforcement, and other issues related to copyright law in the digital age.
